Rise and Reverie cancelled already? Both upcoming NBC dramas will comprise shortened 10 episode first seasons, though network chief Jennifer Salke assures THR the Peacock hasn’t already lost confidence in the series:
Jason Katims’ Rise and the Sarah Shahi VR drama Reverie, will both have just 10-episode seasons. “Part of it is scheduling, part of it is creative,” [Salke] said, pointing particularly to the desire to pair Katims’ theater drama Rise with The Voice in 2018. “We’re starting to get the press to understand. … It’s not like, ‘Oh, they lost confidence.’ There’s a smarter strategy afoot.”
News to me but given midseason date and concept, not a surprise.
